"Designing means providing the objects of our daily life with the most sensible and simple forms so that they optimally fulfill the function for which they are intended. With this design I wanted to go to the synthesis of the clay jug, integrating all the functional elements to the maximum, like the two spouts and the handle, thus recovering traditional elements such as the porous clay that allows the jug to refresh the water for perspiration and the green varnish on top, finished off with a sober handle. The double bevel on the upper part of the clay jug recalls the neckline of a dress that, with its slim shapes and organic curves, gives the design a more feminine character "André Ricard.
